No Need to Cut This to Pieces,
The editor did a fine enough job, thank you. In the classic exploitation film style of flashback, our anti-hero James "Lucky" Lombardo remembers for us his exploits in the vice rackets. From gigolo to unlicensed abortion doctor; whoremaker to racket boss, Lucky's tale is so epic this one hour movie seems like two. Perhaps due to the onset of the later stages of syphilis, his memory lapses in places, as he remembers earlier events after first remembering later events. Though viewers might get somewhat confused by all the jumping around, all is well, as we are assured that in the end lecherous Lucky's luck ends at midnight in the electric chair.
This one falls in the "so bad it's good" catagory. 4/10
